Eamon Dunphy's Scathing Criticism Of Pogba & Zlatan May Just Be Peak-Dunphy

Eamon Dunphy's Scathing Criticism Of Pogba & Zlatan May Just Be Peak-Dunphy

We thought that calling Cristiano Ronaldo a 'puffball' might have done it, we felt for sure that calling Sergio Ramos 'Paul McShane on steroids' was going to reach it, but it appears that we have finally hit peak Eamon Dunphy, now, in 2016.

Never shy to completely write off a player after a bad performance, Dunphy gave a damning verdict of all of Jose Mourinho's summer signings after their first dropped points of the season in the Manchester derby.


Pogba was torn to pieces, Zlatan was essentially called fat as the belief that he won't be playing for Man United after Christmas was expressed, and even Eric Bailly took a bit of stick albeit by far the most accurate..

Speaking to 2FM's 'Game On', the RTE pundit let rip, and it really doesn't get any more Eamon Dunphy.

Pogba, if you paid £50m you'd think 'Wow, we've made a move here' but for £100m. He's nothing. He just doesn't have a position you can play him in. He's never done it and I think the harsh assessment of that is that Alex Ferguson was right to let him go because he saw, what I think I have always seen... this guy doesn't have a game.

There's no way you can play him, he does nothing well enough. He doesn't have a football brain and takes up the wrong positions all the time. I don't see anything in him and I think he's going to be a spectacular failure.

Mourinho may have lost the plot permanently. He bought this guy Ibrahimovic who scored a goal Saturday when the new wonderful goalkeeper dropped the ball at his feet.

Ibrahimovic won't be in the team at Christmas. Not in the big games. He might knock over little teams like he's been doing but he's not a big game player.

He looked overweight and tired after 20 minutes. So did Pogba, he didn't look fit. Neither did Wayne Rooney who ended the game with his socks around his ankles which is always a bad sign. He is a shadow of the player he was.

And this new defender Bailly looks like he's a headbanger.

He's got a point with Eric Bailly for sure, although almost all United fans are seeing that as a positive so far, but that seems like a very bold prediction for Zlatan, and the type of thing that will come back to haunt him on Pogba if he does go on to enjoy success at Old Trafford.

We've heard it before, he knows his role and plays it to perfection.
